Things were getting better but then I exercised or did something else utterly stupid. Regardless, I had to tape it today. If you're bored and you have nothing better to do, tape your fingers together, just the pinky and the ring finger, and then try to type. Or wash dishes. Do laundry. Exercise. Feed the dogs, cook dinner, put your hair up, etc.
Seriously, the pinky is a highly unappreciated finger.
